AT&T GoPhone users can now get HSPA+ and LTE speeds

Beginning today, AT&T GoPhone users can now get access to 4G speeds. This includes AT&T's HSPA+ and LTE networks, though it is provided the user has a supported handset.

These new speeds are available at this time and will be available with the $65, $50 or $25 per month plans.

Zact opens for business offering customizable no-contract mobile plans

ItsOn had been tipped to launch a new mobile offering and in that respect, they have done just that. The one catch, while ItsOn has launched today, it did not arrive exactly as was expected. Basically, instead of ItsOn taking advantage of the Verizon Wireless network, they have chosen to use the network of another US based CDMA carrier. Perhaps more important though, ItsOn has launched the service as Zact and it is indeed a no-contract carrier.

AT&T adds to the prepaid options with Aio Wireless

Coming off the recent rumors, AT&T has announced Aio Wireless. This will be a contract-free setup and they will be offering plans that include unlimited talk, text and data. Aio Wireless is a nationwide wireless service and the initial launch will have availability for those in Houston, Orlando and Tampa with more markets promised to arrive "over the next year."
